Was it a tough night, dude? Cool Moment Echidna wanders into a bottle shop – and makes a complete mess
- Echidna broke into Kyogle BWS in northern NSW last week
- A thorny intruder knocked on liquor cans scattered in glass across the store
- A rude animal fell asleep under a champagne shelf after a rampage
- The shocked employee assumed that the bottle shop had been broken into and vandalized
Bottle shop received a late night visit from very thirsty echidna.
The thorny intruder broke into the Kyogle BWS in the North New South Wales Last week I immediately embarked on a path of mass destruction.
The mischievous echidna was caught on CCTV staring carelessly at the beer fridge and checking boxes of wine and champagne.
The thorny intruder broke into the Kyogle BWS in northern New South Wales last week and immediately embarked on a path of mass destruction.
The impudent animal managed to hit several bottles of vodka and liquor as it surfed and left glass shards strewn across the corridors.
The rough creature was discovered the next morning by a shocked employee who assumed the store had been broken into and vandalized.
He found sleeping ants curled up under a shelf of champagne and called WIRES to move the intruder.
Rescuing an echidna can be difficult because the animal is able to move its spines individually and can squeeze itself into very tight corners.
Extracting the animal without causing injury can be stressful, as this feisty individual was found in a hurry to move after being persuaded by volunteers.

‘Fortunately, WIRES volunteer Rebecca was trained on how to encourage the echidna to let go of its grip and quickly kicked the intruder off the shelves,’ WIRES Northern Rivers said in a Facebook post.
The organization confirmed that the animal was examined after the agitation, no injuries were found and it was released into the wild away from the store.
“The ants walked away in a straight line, clearly not consuming much champagne during the night,” the post read.
“Thank you to the Kyogle BWS Bottle Store staff for contacting WIRES, we hope the offender learned his lesson and won’t break and enter again.”
BWS reposted the adorable CCTV footage on its Facebook page, with the video caption: “Tell me you’re thirsty without telling me you’re thirsty.”
“The local echidna in Kegel NSW knows where the drinks are.”
WIRES Northern Rivers confirmed that the animal had been checked after a rampage and no injuries were found and that it had been released into the wild away from the store.
Social media users flocked to the comments to share their thoughts on the unusual intruder.
‘Beware it doesn’t raise your drink,’ one user joked.
Good story and happy ending. Another commented.
A third said, “What, wasn’t the RBT before you had to leave?”
Another common use is “winter is when echidna is active, and it’s probably a large animal that has trouble drinking.”
